What to Serve with Sausage Soup?
Add some fresh greens with an easy kale salad with fresh lemon dressing for a bright and tangy side! You can also serve a side of raw veggies like carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and zucchini rounds with french onion dip.
Leftovers will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days and reheat well in the microwave or on the stovetop.
Most soup recipes and stews can be easily frozen however soups with potatoes don’t freeze well. The potatoes tend to break apart and may have a grainy texture once thawed.
If you plan to freeze this soup, skip the potatoes and add extra celery and carrots (or cook the potatoes on the side). You can freeze this with the potatoes too of course, just keep in mind the texture may change slightly.
